utes to their tendency to form clumps spontaneously. Since the rise of the field of sociobiology, the study of Though the exact relationship between these behaviors the biological basis of social behavior, scientists have is not known, they all appear to be related to food restriven to assign genetic origins for a variety of social sponse in some manner: in the absence of food, clumpbehaviors. There have been a number of highly publiing and dispersing strains behave very similarly in all cized… CONTINUE READING
